to take some risks. you must create the change that you want to see. >> you must create the change that you want to see. in america or in israel. those are important words. and those that take the risk are the only ones that take change. change does not come. without the risk of doing something different without the risk of being misunderstood, without the risk of being criticized. but once the change occurs, all of the criticism and all of the risks mean nothing because the change will be there for all of the good reasons that you committed yourself to it in the first place. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton.

that president obama will be very pragmatic and that scares me. he says president obama is willing to change the formula for how benefits under social security, medicare and other programs are calculated, change cpi in exchange for higher taxes? keep in mind the senator, this senator made a big slash filibustering 13 hours over an issue answered with one sentence f. the big three are threatened by a grand bargain. get your phones out. tonight's question. do you want bernie sanders, the senator, independent from vermont, to filibuster to protect the big three? text a for yes. b for you to 67622. you can go to our blog and we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm already starting to get the feeling i've got a very unpopular position here that we should protect the big three at all costs because that's what this election was all about. it's about making the wealthiest americans pay more, but to get them to pay more, we have to cut into the middle class and elderly who didn't cause these financial problems. i don't buy it. joining me now is senator bernie sanders of vermont. good to ha

, is now offering to plead guilty next change for life behind bars. holmes' lawyers want to avoid the death penalty. and jared loughner is the shooter who killed six people and wounded gabby giffords. his parents took away the shotguns and dabisabled his cart night so he couldn't leave. david, the white house has tried to use political capital to pass gun legislation. what are we expecting to hear from the president in the next hour? >> i think he's going to make the same statements as before and tie what happened in newtown to what he's trying to do and hammer home some of the main points, whether he may or may not get some of the biggest issues he's going for, like a ban on high-capacity magazines, a ban on assault weapons. it's not going to happen probably but he's going to push hard on background checks and make this a personal case again. with the family members. that's been his most powerful, you know, sort of point so far. he did it right after the shooting, as you nopknow, and i think the white house will hit home the same message. >> and you're reporting that senator chuck grassley

most and that is the next step, change medicare from a guaranteed program into a voucher. >> that's right. you remember paul ryan. >> we're also going to repeal obama care and replace it with real reform. >> yeah, that didn't quite pan out as he'd hoped but those ryan reforms are still on the agenda, including a potential hike in the medicare retirement age. back to his post as budget chairman, ryan will unveil the republican's budget next week and the headlines really do tell the story. paul ryan floats change to medicare plan. gop centrists balk at ryan medicare shift. republican goal to balance budget could mean deep cuts to health programs. new york republican peter king tells "the washington post," quote, i know a number of people who have real concerns about where this is going. one of the last presidents to balance the budget was herbert hoover. oh, yes, happy days are here again. nbc's kristin welker joins us live from the white house. kristin, one imagines that each day the president wakes up believing that the white house -- sorry, that house republicans will see sense a

of president will change that equation. it may, however, move both sides closer to a deal but i think the revenue increases are going to be a difficult part until you get postsequester. >> congressman, i agree with everything you just said and speak to a couple of theories floetding around that the dysfunction we see in washington now is purposeful. e.j. dion suggests perhaps to make it hard for the president to accomplish anything that sort of shrinking the calendar on the affirmative portion of this administration. but also, trying to talk about people dislike congress more, thus speaking to the republican, larger republican theory that congress is at a -- government is the problem, thus leading to the idea that government should be shrunk. what do you think about those theories? >> i think it's little conspire toirl. you have differences from both sides. going to be difficult to just bridge that gap easily. and it's been difficult for democrats to move toward the republican side and vice versa. bringing government down doesn't help the republicans at this point. the president's the
